Great boot. Minor defects.

By Bryan


A fantastic boot as far as weight and agility; however, not good if you need true foot protection. The boots are rather soft and are not good if you need to be kicking things, trekking over rocks, working heavy equipment, etc.

Most importantly, the suede on my boots have begun to tear along the seams after four months. I see from the reviews that I'm not the first with this problem. I have contacted 5.11 for replacement. We'll see how good 5.11's customer service department is.


These are perfect

By Trent


Had these boots for two years. I wear them almost everyday and they are still In perfect shape. Buying a new pair just for nice occasions and using my old ones for everyday! After using 511 tactical, no other tactical brand comes close!! Impressed!

Best Boot I've Ever Worn

By Hash Brown

from Earth

I use these boots for duty, hiking, and sometimes everyday wear. They are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn, period. The 5.11 HRT boots were ok, but these boots fixed everything that was wrong with the HRT's. They've stood up to some abuse, range time, hiking, duty use, and they've held up great. I was worried about how they would hold up initially. I bought two pair (one as a spare) because they are such a great boot. My only complaint is the color really isn't coyote, it's desert. The boots should be a lot darker to be considered coyote.


as i expected

By Sandman

from Oklahoma

I wear this product EVERYDAY it is very comfortable and well built I wear it to school,work, and the mountains when i go on hikes these are some of the best boots I've owned. I bought these in November of 2013 and in oklahoma that was right before all the snow hit us and these bots lived very well in the cold with a good pair of thick socks. and bottom line is as soon as my current pair wear out I'll be buying another pair of these or a similar 5.11 boot


Well worth the $

By Glockfan23

from West Frankfort, IL

I've worn these boots everyday for a year now. Literally, everyday. I'm on my feet walking all day at work and I wouldn't want anything else on my feet. The tread did start to wear quickly but the boots themselves are as comfortable today as they were the day I received them. I'll be purchasing another pair in the near future.
